The Abbey Grange Jazz Band is an exciting new ensemble that performs a diverse mixture of Jazz standards and contemporary arrangements. Despite its budding age, the Jazz Band has already become a prominent fixture of evening events at Abbey Grange and has begun performing competitively, playing a set at this year’s Music For Youth Festival in Wakefield. The membership of the Jazz Band features a diverse range of ages and ability levels right the way through from KS3 to Post-16, who enjoy socialising as well as making music together. A love of Jazz is not compulsory for potential new band members, and membership is drawn from a wide variety of musical backgrounds. All that is needed is an enthusiasm for performing as part of a dynamic and innovative group of young musicians. Jazz Band membership is usually by invitation only, but we encourage anyone who would like to inquire about becoming a member of the Band to come to the music office and register their interest with a member of the music department staff.
